What is the European Publishers Council?

The EPC is not a trade association but a high level group of the most senior representatives of newspaper and magazine publishers in Europe, with business presence around the world. 

 

Members have been working since 1991 to review the impact of proposed European legislation on the press, and then express an agreed opinion to the initiators of the legislation, politicians and opinion-formers with a view to influencing the content of final directives and regulations.

 

The overall objective has always been to encourage good law-making for the media industry.
